Shanti Dal image-1
Shanti Dal (Communal Harmony and Disaster Mngt)

At the time of Independence of India, theory of partition of the Nation i.e. two nations theory was strongly putforth by Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. British rulers were tacitly supporting the said theory by using their ageold ‘divide and rule’ policy. Ultimately India was divided in two parts – India and Pakistan. While exchanging population after partition common people were facing lots of trouble. Hindu Muslim communal riots were spreading all over the country. On the border of newly born Nations. Lot of families were shatter by violence Gandhiji was working day and night for stop riots. He alone was fighting as one man’s army.

Standing peace army is necessary for civil Society. Mahatma Gandhi wanted to create such army of common people which will work continuously for maintaining peace and harmony in the Society.

In Gujarat riots 2002 most of the families of minority communities were drastically affected and lost their lives. Violence was based on the conflict of cast, religion and disparities in the Society. These conflicts and hate campaigns are damaging peace and harmony in the Society.
The huge damage to the peace and harmony in the society compelled MGSN to work on this serious issue. Accordingly MGSN started an activity with the name Shanti Dal. It is working for creating awareness and campaigning for permanent peace and harmony in the Society. Research, workshops and recruitment of volunteers for this cause is the prime object of Shanti Dal. MGSN has worked successfully on such sensitive issues in Pune City.

Injustice on minority community for fifty years by denying them their right to build mosque which was destroyed by flood in 1961. Erection of building of Makkesha Masjid, has been achieved with peaceful means under the leadership of Dr. Kumar Saptarshi. Hindutvadi forces were opposing construction of this masjid. Since then Muslim community in Pune is emotionally attached to MGSN. They believed that followers of gandhiji will always stand firmly and fight for justice with minority community. This faith enriches us and our institution.
